Mr. Harnik led the “Insiders Washington” category for “Fist of Support” — his striking image of Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul, the frame dominated by an American flag and punctuated by a lone, powerful fist. The image also has been named “Political Photo of the Year.”
“Ron Paul was speaking at the Iowa State Fair last December, with a row of very enthusiastic military vets behind him. Ron Paul was looking very ‘Ron Paul,’ and most everything he said was well received,” Mr, Harnik recalled.

THAT was the winning photo????
A badly composed photo with a tiny image of Paul grimacing rather strangely and a fist? It would have been a thousand times better if it'd been cropped and perhaps framed so that he didn't have such a peculiar expression on his face.
The whole composition makes him look tiny (almost insignificant) and as though he has a single voter. There are hundreds of better shots of him at the debates and so forth. It appears to symbolically dismiss him.

The fist is in the wrong place.
Anyway, Ron Paul actually won something!
